I'm feeling a lot more positive now, and i am slightly more upbeat so i finally have the energy to share some pics i talked about talking. I'm so sloooww sometimes!
Ok firstly, my crazy Sunday with my Dad's tank, he bought a gun for it, so we attached the gun to the top (it's as well as the turret!) and he was over the moon, it looks way cool -
I got one of the two of us, I'm in the drivers' compartment.
We had to hook up the ridiculously huge trailer that the tank sits on, to the tank transporter - a Diamond T truck. That was hard enough in itself, then placing it so we could get a run up with the tan. This is the truck with the trailer...
I had to stand on the trailer and guide him on board. I could only see the underside of the tank for a few moments.... scary stuff. This was before hand, lining up...
I love this pic i got of it on board, with my Dad half climbing off...
Later on all chained up and parked up.
(The little dog is our family dog Tilly)
I'm in the sharing mood now! I work right next to a canal, where it's lovely right now as it's filled with all new chicks of the Spring!
Um, this weekend i took a picture of our baby in the rain.
Yep - the car is our baby! =P
Ok and to finish i'll post my new Nikes i got. I haven't worn them yet but i just keep peeking at them hehe...
I was a little heavy on the pics. I hope at least somebody found them interesting, lol!
And onto my plan?
I was reading a new Spark friends blog today, (LIOCORO), she just finished a fantastic Slimdown Challenge including a shed load of workouts, and she has done so so well with amazing results! I'm on the lookout for a new challenge... so this kinda sparked a lightbulb up in my brain! I am going to get my dvds together and create a 30 day challenge from the materials i have. I have the Shred and i have P90 what i haven't tried yet. I have my BodyRocking too. So the plan is to create this challenge for myself and start it either Monday or Tuesday. I need something to keep me interested and on my game and i think this might be it!
I had a delicious post-workout shake yesterday, simply with chocolate soya milk and cookies&cream protein powder. It was utterly fantastic but THEN i recorded it in my nutritional and i don't think i can do that very often! It was over 300 calories and i don't think i want something so high in cals as i tend to eat dinner shortly afterwards.
So that's my plan. I'll have to take some starting pics too by next week. I haven't taken any recent ones lately and even though i've been up and down so much, I really feel the BodyRocking has still been helping me get a little leaner and more toned.
This blog is far too huge. I'm done for today! =)

I feel really refreshed and rested and ready to start again. See that? I'm ready to start again, lol.
My eating has been pretty awful all weekend, we went to my parents caravan and relaxed and ate lots of yummy food. I felt wonderful though, really. I got some new clothes that were on sale, a really nice Nike vest top, with Nike 3/4 bottoms to match... both size 12s. It felt amazing to just pick 'em up off the rail and buy them, then try them on and them fit nice. It feels great! And kind of a relief as well. I also got some really nice trainers, which wasn't planned either haha. They're really funky and more like a fashion trainer, and i'm so so happy with them as i don't have any nice trainers i can just wear that weren't made specifically for exercising. I did take some pics so i'll share them in my next blog. Along with last Sunday's fun pix!
I weighed myself before, after returning home. I was dreading it. But ya know what? I am DOWN to my pre-Holiday weight! I'm down to 147.75lbs! This is such a shock to me... but the kinda thing i was talking about what my body does sometimes... i have eaten crap for a while and my body hasn't punished me by sucking up the fat and pounds! Wow!
I had Ben & Jerry's Fairly Nuts ice cream for my breakfast this morning.... LOL. There's my confession. ;) So, now i feel ready, I'm resting for the rest of today and then back to tough workouts and clean eating for the new week.
A quick thought too, i was thinking of lowering my target weight. It only takes me a little bit into the 'healthy weight' part of the BMI... i don't know whether to lower it to say 135lbs for my 5'5 height, to be a little 'safer' into the BMI scale? Or i don't know whether that would be possible for me or be too extreme... on the other hand, i'm happy to carry on as i am and just solely aim to be healthy, eat healthy and workout for fun.

How do i start?
I went AWOL for the weekend. Kind of. I've logged in and tracked but not much else. I had a long hard working weekend... so i've just needed to rest at night... running short on sleep and to be fair i've had some real physical labour days... i say hard work at work, but it really did include a lot of fun. I work for my Dad see, and my Dad's hobby is military vehicles. Whilst i'm working he might pull me off one job to help him out with his stuff. My weekend consisted of playing around with his new tank, lifting heavy stuff onto it, learning to drive it, and then on the Sunday, putting it up on it's trailer for travelling. It's the first time we ever attempted to put it on the trailer, and it's not such a simple task. It took a whole day and it really was a workout lifting all the heavy stabilising chains up high and everything. I was gonna maybe post some pics but i only really use this blog for my lifestyle... so i dunno, lol.
The eating has been pretty good, apart from last night. I had a major pig out. Major. It's ok though. I think. I feel worse to myself for not BodyRocking the past 2 updates. So it's 2 workouts i'm behind. I should be able to catch up for when there is no update and i can fill in. I just have to set my mind to it. Sleep has been more important right now. And lounging around...
I'm sorry to my friends who are supporting me so much, with my back and forth stuff... i am trying to be with you, and then i take a step back...and i'm sorry. I think i need a new challenge. Something new and different to get myself pumped and hungry for it. I need to find it.
Back to work!
